Amino Acid IV
Amino Acid Therapy is simplest basic component of proteinand is one of the most important nutrients of the body because it constituents makes up protein providing the essential building block for cells, tissues, organ system, neurotransmitter and so on. The essential amino acids most be consumed by the body daily either through food, supplements or Intravenously unlike non-essential amino acid made by the body. The advantage of intravenous amino acid therapy is the fact it is highly bioavailable passing first phase metabolism without affecting digestion. Amino acid IV may be administered to help increase muscle mass, recovery, better sleep, speedy recovery from exercise, infections and it most indicated for patients with gut issues, malabsorption and athletes.
High-Dose Vitamin C
IV Therapy is one of the most effective ways in delivering nutrients to the body bypassing first phase metabolism. IV therapy may sometimes be needed especially with patients with mal-digestion or absorptive digestive issue especially with elderly or the sick. Vitamin C is an essential dietary nutrient not only for immune support but Vitamin C is essential for many biological processes including cartilage support, vascular, growth, repair, skin, bone, immune health and anti-oxidant support. It is a co-factor for many enzymes and humans and some animals lack enzyme to make and therefore it must be consumed to optimize health and immunity. Studies has shown that the correlation of individual who have higher intake of vitamin C and lower risk for chronic diseases including cancer, eye diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and heart disease perhaps due to its potent anti-oxidant capacity. Vitamin C is important in synthesizing catecholamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine and adrenal steroidogenesis making it an important nutrient for depression and fatigue.

Intravenous Ozone Therapy
Intravenous Ozone Therapy treatment consists of the use of medical grade oxygen and ozone gases safely injected into the vein. Ozone gas is a trivalent oxygen molecule lacking an electron. The extra “O” in the ozone molecule acts like a glue to ``steal`` an electron from anything in the body that cannot defend itself, including viruses, bacteria, fungus, yeast and molds. Healthy cells, which contain antioxidants, are not impacted, but all pathogens are destroyed. Ozone Therapy is the basis of a type of therapy that’s been used to help fight “incurable” diseases throughout the world. Administered intravenously (I.V.), this method was first used by doctors in France in 1951. Widely used in Europe, Ozone Therapy was introduced into the United States in the early 1980’s.
Glutathione is a potent antioxidant that the body makes and uses every day. It is often called the “master antioxidant,” due to all it does in the body. It is vital in many body processes such as: Enzyme and protein function, Cysteine carrier and storage, Gene expression, and Cell differentiation, signaling and proliferation. It has been shown to reduce cell damage in alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, improves insulin resistance in older individuals, increases mobility for people with peripheral artery disease, reduces symptoms of Parkinson's disease and may help fight against autoimmune disease but, the most powerful functions glutathione offers your system are its antioxidant properties.
The liver is one of the organ systems that convert toxins to less toxic body waste by metabolizing nutrients and drugs to avoid toxic build up. It regulates enzymes, protein, albumin, carrier proteins and overall keeping the body healthy. It is paramount to keep your liver healthy not just by avoiding over indulging or consumption alcohol and bad diet, but to treat our liver healthy by frequent detox in addition to healthy diet and exercise.
Nutritional IVs are not new they have been around for quite a while. They were first called a Meyer’s cocktail after the doctor that started using them. He used them for chronic disease patients to repair deficiencies and improve patient’s energy and quality of life. They are still used in hospitals for rehydration and to restore nutritional deficiencies. A Nutritional IV is a mix of water-soluble vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium and calcium. They are becoming popular because they are so good at giving that boost of energy and stopping a cold or flu. They are used for chronic disease, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, cold and flu, rehydration, hang overs and more. In our office the nutritional IV is individualized with the nutrients needed by each patient adding what they need for their optimal health.
